CoMusic Review: Photos from Portugal, the Man at The Blue Note

The Blue Note was filled almost to capacity last night for Portugal, The Man. The stage was littered with glowing orbs. Paired with a couple floodlights on either side of the stage and a bounty of fog, the entire room was aglow. The band rarely took a break between songs, but they still managed to compliment Columbia three times on being such an awesome town. The question “Who saw us last time at Mojo’s?” elicited cheers from all around the room. The doors must have busted off Mojo’s if all those people were actually there. The band blazed through a 19 song set, plus a three song encore, much to the delight of the generous crowd. Setlist below the photos.

Alberta Cross opened the show with their brand of southern rock by way of New York by way of Western Europe. Their set was solid. I will definitely see them again if they roll through town on a headlining tour. But I’m definitely investing in some better earplugs, they were f’in loud.

  1. The last Mojo’s show was outside. There were definitely a lot of people at that one. It was great, but I thought this show was even better.
